Closing the Writing Gap

In Closing the Writing Gap, Alex Quigley makes sense of
the history and ‘science’ of writing, synthesising the
debates and presenting a wealth of usable evidence
about how children develop most efficiently as
successful writers. Offering practical strategies for
teachers at every stage of their teaching career, the
book helps teachers to be an expert in how pupils learn
to write, from the big picture of planning, editing and
revising your writing, to the vital importance of
grammar and spelling with accuracy. This book
presents the case for teacher-led efforts to develop
pupils’ writing and provides practical solutions for
teachers across the curriculum.
